The European market has seen a quattro model based on the old square-style
coupe body, but no turbo, no flared fenders, etc. You can think of those
as the 4000Q but in the coupe body with 2 doors. Thus, strictly speaking,
what uniquely identifies an Ur-quattro are the following (obvious traits):
old (1981 on) squared coupe body style
flared front and rear fenders
turbocharged & intercooled 5-cylinder engine
The Ur-quattros also comes with the "quattro" script on the rear
side windows, and the 4-ring decal on the lower part of the
front doors. There is also a thin dual pinstripe that goes all
the way along the beltline. I have known some Ur-quattro owners
who had removed these decals and stripes, however.
While the 1983 Sport Quattro also has flared fenders and a 20V
turbo five, those exotic short beasties are not called the "Ur".
